Prabhakaran and son Siddharth,Prabhakaran,Prabhakaran Mylsamy. Currently human society faces critcal problems associated with the use of fossil. fuels The amount of fossil fuel stored in underground reservoirs has decreased. rapidly due to mass consumption Furthermore carbon dioxide exhausted by the. combustion of fossil fuels accumulates in the air resulting in the greenhouse effect. and global warming Under such circumstances energy sources alternative to fossil. fuels are strongly needed for supporting human activity in the twenty first century. particularly alternatives that are renewable and do not trigger global warming. Biomass has been realized as an important renewable energy source and scientists. and engineers are keen on developing technologies for utilizing biomass as an. energy source Bio electricity generated from biomass therefore attracts many. researchers as a promising option for renewable energy. Microbial fuel cells MFCs are devices that use living microbes as catalysts for. the conversion of organic fuels into electricity and these devices have recently. attracted extensive attention as sustainable bioenergy systems MFC systems can be. applied to the generation of electricity at water sediment interfaces in the environ. ment such as bay areas wetlands and rice fields In MFCs electrochemically. active bacteria EAB which can transfer electrons to extracellular solid acceptors. play key roles in electricity generation Many EAB have been isolated from MFCs. and natural environments and have been characterized in the laboratory Due to their. diverse metabolic potentials and established manipulation techniques EAB are. considered to be excellent materials for biotechnology. In this book we will find an excellent collection of articles on the fundamental. description application and further perspectives of MFC technology I therefore. believe that this book will exert a tremendous impact on science and technology for. the research development and commercialization of renewable green energy I. strongly recommend this book to researchers engineers and students who are inter. ested in MFC technology,viii Foreword, Finally I appreciate the contributions and dedicated efforts of all the authors in. Kazuya Watanabe Professor,School of Life Science,Tokyo University of Pharmacy and Life Sciences. Even the structure of the atom has been found by the mind. Bhagvan Sri Ramana Maharshi, In eighteenth century the birth of microbial fuel cells MFCs was registered by. Luigi Galvani who explored the flow of electrons in biological organisms in the. legs of a frog Later in 1912 Michael C Potter at University of Durham United. Kingdom carried this research forward and made his first demonstration of MFCs. After four decades of Barnet Cohen s 1931 MFC research using multiple units. I Karube reported further developments in 1975 The centenary of MFC research. was proved with an outcome such that the first practical application was achieved. by running a small DC motor for a few seconds by H P Bennetto in 1985 Following. this the role of electroactive bacteria EAB by W Habermann and E H Pommer. and electron conduction properties of Geobacter species by D R Bond and. D R Lovely were reported in the years 1990 and 2003 respectively. With the above anecdote the basic principle and the organization of chapters. have been discussed in a nutshell as follows, The electron transfer mechanism is significant in an electrochemical system. and is sought with an absolute interaction between microbes and electrodes. Conspicuously in bio catalyzed systems the transfer becomes significant in. harnessing electrical energy along with the degradation of pollutants present in. the system, Microbial fuel cells MFCs are electrochemical reactors that function due to the. oxidation of biodegradable substrates at the expense of electroactive bacteria EAB. to generate electric current Microorganisms are the biocatalysts that help in the. electrical energy conversion of biodegradable substrates including complex waste. water and sediments in addition to simple sugars and derivatives The metabolic. transportation of electrons from EAB to electrodes insoluble substrates is feasible. thanks to extracellular electron transport, On the basis of the electrogenic nature of certain bacteria MFC technology. has gained incredible attention for its production of energy from various. soluble organic wastes of natural low carbon biomass and synthetic sources. The mixed cultures are preferred for inoculation in MFCs due to cost effective. ness and practicality reasons in wastewater treatment Studies on the choice of. sewage for bacterial feeding in MFCs to drive out energy are compelled due to. futuristic challenges and environmental sustainability Although we have ample. knowledge of microbiology and electro materials chemistry we need to examine. the technical viability in accordance with the application niche which together. pave the way for commercialization, As the possibility of drawing energy from biotic components is the need of the. hour Chap 1 focuses on the possible sources of biomass which sustainably cater to. energy needs The progress of converting waste to worth has yet to move at a radical. rate in the coming years, The real notion behind the second chapter is to make readers understand the. fundamentals classifications significance and challenges of MFC technology. Indeed the inherent nature of the autotrophs plant and algae has been of spell. binding interest toward the making and breaking of electricity and organic contami. nants respectively Intensive research on a potentially engineered rhizodeposition. would facilitate an appreciable rate of electron transfer to captivate state of the art. applications On the other hand the advent of heterotrophic fungi has recently. gained attention recently by utilizing the species to form biofilm around the elec. trode which improves the MFC s performance By bridging the significance of bio. mass and energy Chaps 3 5 and 6 provide exhaustive discussions based on the. previously reported findings on plant algae and fungi based MFCs. Above all the quintessential microbial community is governed by the types of. plants and soils upon which the output power of an MFC is relied upon To corrobo. rate this Chaps 4 and 7 discuss the significance of paddy plant and soil with. organic waste in generating appreciable electricity by using bamboo charcoal spun. with iron wire as an anode The duality of iron wire with bamboo charcoal was. discernible with regard to electron generation and nutrition to the soil organisms. Exclusive chapters 8 and 10 have been devoted to energy production from ani. mal waste in particular the ruminal degradation of biomass was studied by varying. electrodes pH substrates catholytes and buffers, Interestingly electricigens are one among the meritorious factors in enhancing. the efficiency of MFCs These are microorganisms with high coulombic efficiency. that completely oxidize organic fuels to carbon dioxide by actively transporting elec. trons to electrode Also these are credited with the conservation of energy which in. turn equips MFCs for long term sustainability Electricigens are detailed in Chap 9. The bimodal practice of bioelectricity generation and remediation has become a. dominant area of research With profound insight Chaps 11 and 12 discuss the. efficiency economic feasibility and ultimate commercialization of the process. Specifically microbial desalination cell MDC based research attempts to discuss. the two unique challenges of water purification and sustainable power from a single. vantage point and it has gained great attention among interdisciplinary. researchers,Preface xi, Chapter 13 addresses the performance of MFCs at pilot scale levels and. the associated challenges to be overcome in large scale applications The final. chapter of the book provides a thorough investigation of the successful implemen. tation of MFCs in rural areas and stresses its potential to improve life conditions. The present book will be very useful and informative as a valuable reference to. those working in MFC biofilm interactions bio electrochemistry and waste man. agement In addition it should gain much of appreciation among environmental. chemists biologists bioenergy researchers and wastewater biofuel industrialists.
